A high-density, fossil-rich stone, Antique Yangtze Limestone has been reclaimed from abandoned homes and schoolyards across more than 1600 villages along the Yangtze River, prior to their submerging following China’s Three Gorges Dam Project.


Carrying its original point stalk, pineapple and split face textures, the stone coloring ranges from toasty beige to sage and charcoal. Richly fossilised, it seamlessly blends with New Yangtze Limestone in any application.

Recommended Uses

Veneers, quoins


Principal setting methods include proprietary wedge anchor setting for dry stack applications or clipped and back-filled veneer systems.

As you'd expect in a natural product, stone does vary in colour and texture, even in the same quarry block. That's what makes stone so unique.
We recommend using the images on our website to initially chose the colour, texture and look you prefer, then talk to us to see our current samples. Mockups are also a great option before making your final decision. We strive to provide a product of the highest quality, but please remember it's stone, not paint. The colour and texture of the next layer in the quarry was defined millions of years ago.
